Friday was our first day back at Art Class after Christmas break. The children were excited to be back. They did a lot of drawing this week. First they designed quilt squares on paper (each child did two) and then colored crayons and chalks over top of their drawing. Each square was then glued to a larger piece to make a Homeschool Art Class quilt. Next, the children made a book. But instead of writing a story, they drew it in a series of pictures. Next, one of the children stood behind an easel with a painting no one else could see. He then gave the other children a series of directions to try and get them to recreate the painting. It was very interesting to see what they came up with! Then the teacher gave them a series of instructions to draw and create a picture adding some construction paper pieces for decoration. Next week we are supposed to be doing Papier Mache and paint.
